    Has Mappoint always had voice directions?

    I haven't used it in quite a while, so I figured I'd play with it again and I noticed it muted my music and gave me the directions as I drove. I don't remeber it doing this before, but maybe somehow it did an I just don't remember.

    If It wasn't dark here all the time, I'd really think about switching back from Streets and Trips '06... I just like the night mode map so much it's hard to leave.

    it doesn't MUTE the music.. it reduces it by the % amount you specify in RRConfig, then it speaks the directions then it resumes the music. This has always been there from the very first versions with mappoint support.

    I posted this in another thread, but it may work better here. How do you embed Mappoint. I've got a newer (but not newest) build of RR and MP2004 and MC2.0 skin, and Mappoint only works as "External" GPS progam.

    I'd copy over the mappoint skin files from the BMV skin and do it that way. It's a little more complex than adding a program like skribble, notepad, or even Streets and Trips.
